All three objects exert gravitational pull.

The water at the surface of the Earth is pulled in three directions:

a) towards the centre of the Earth

b) towards the centre of the Moon

c) towards the centre of the Sun.

The highest tide will be when the Sun and Moon are in-line when their gravitational pull sums. The tide at this occurrence is known as the 'Spring Tide'. The other diagram shows the relative positions during a 'Neap' tide.
